The Sensory Herbal Handbook Summary

The Sensory Herbal Handbook: Connect with the Medicinal Power of Your Local Plants by The Seed Sistas

"A unique mix of knowledge and wisdom, respect and irreverence" - Bruce Parry This book has been written for anyone who has heard the whispers of the wild and has been stirred to know more, for those with a political conscience and for lovers of the outdoors. Whether you are new to the ways of herbs or already a practising herbalist, it explains how you can take your physical and mental health into your own hands using the plants that grow around you. Sensory Herbalism is a unique system of health devised by the Seed Sistas over 20 years of practice. It combines traditional herbal knowledge with an understanding of how the elements (water, fire, air, earth and spirit) and the ever-changing seasons interact with the human body. Their approach blends science, medicine, creativity, ritual, magic and fun into practical, easy-to-use tools that guide readers in developing their own relationship with plants. Illustrated with 140 artworks, photographs and diagrams, the book offers a revolutionary understanding of how to get to know and use your local medicinal plants. Understand plants better than ever before using the five tools of Sensory Herbalism: observation through the senses, intuition, interpretation, characterization and the poetic creation of plant dreams. Embark on a guided journey through the year, deepening your knowledge of each season's featured plants and enhancing your wellbeing with herbal medicines, nutritious recipes and healing rituals.

What I really like about this book is that it is accessible and encourages everyone to make our own remedies from local plants. This activity brings greater connection with seasonal rhythms, astrological cycles, our local habitats, and add another dimension to garden yields
The Sensory Herbal Handbook is a beautifully presented and comprehensively researched journey into the historical, cultural, medical and magical properties of herbs.
This entire book is exceptionally well written, entertaining, and delightful. It clearly conveys the love and passion that guide the Seed Sistas in their vital need of bringing the sensory element of Herbalism to the forefront.
Truly this is a book to inspire, to cherish, to share and to use. Herbalists and plant lovers the world over will find simple and practical techniques for enhancing their understanding of herbs. Artists, poets,gardeners and cooks as well as herbalists will all find much of interest in this lovely volume. I highly recommend it.
